that this is a very good project and i think that it is exactly what we need one speaker spoke about mixed use and i think that is clearly, there is going to be people, more people living here, the people who will not only work here, but also will take care of their nighttime activities and make it a much more vibrant area of the city. and then someone else spoke about the entitlement for a project that may be sold in the future. and the entitlement that goes with the project if we think that it is the proper project then we should entitle it and regardless if it is sold to another entity, that entity is bound by our conditional use or in this case, it is not a 309, i think that it is a 323 approval, i forget the exact number. but the same rules apply. so those are my feelings, i think that it is real good, and i would like to see a little bit of work on the design and trying to make sure that it is as contextal as possible. particularly with the rich buildings of show place square. >> mr. moore? >> i want to speak to both projects because i believe that it is the transformational power that the con

industrial building on the 1 henry adams site, there would be two mixed use and residential use alt the 1 henry adams site, they would be 68 feet tall, the eastern most portion would be a partial fulfillment of the inclusionary housing requirements. up to 150 units of affordable housing would be constructed on that portion of the 801 brannan site, there are three project variance proposed, variant 1 would include new construction of two mixed use and retail building on the 801 brannan site which variance 3 would also include two buildings on the 801 brannan site, but variance 1 and 2 would not change development on the 1 henry adams site from what is proposed on the project but would not include land dedication to the city. total development would include 1 million 187 thousand 943 gross square feet with up to 824 residential units, approximately 54 thousand 600 retail space and 866 parking spaces, since publication of the draft eir, variance three is the proposed project, a copy of the draft eir certification motion is before you, the public hearing on the draft eir was held on july 28,
to the significant and unavoidable cumulative land use impact identified in the eastern neighborhoods's eir with respect to pvr land supply, it would result in a cumulatively considerable to significant and cumulative transportation at five intersections, and health risk related to toxic air contaminants. therefore, the commission would need to adopt a statement of overriding considerations pursuant to the california environmental quality act, we could request the commission adopt the project before you, and to which the final eir was prepared, it's with the ceqa guidelines. this concludes my presentation on the matter unless the commission members have any comments? >> commissioner antonini? >> thank you for your comments and particular reference and i was going to make the same comment in regards to responses to public comment and as i understand it and you pointed out under ceqa, you can't take into consideration the impact that something that is conceptual has not been funded or analyzed, it's the other way around, when that particular project would come up and you would have to look at
could be three-block faces as in this case. and it's used multiple times in the public works code. amid the block face where the star is. and all of these businesses did not receive notice. so dpw testified a couple of months ago that 101 2nd street is within a 300' radius. i want to ask dpw did anyone at 101 2nd street receive notice? if they did not, notice was not served properly. the second point is the 300' radius. the ordinance use the word "radius." the order itself says there are no like foods within a 300' radius. radius is the proper measurement and dpw is going to get up here and say oh, no, we're going use walking distance and we can't determine what a 300' radius, when they are required to send out a notice to businesses within a 300' radius. they know all the businesses within that 300' radius and they are going to get up here and say i don't know what businesses are within a 300' rayus? that is just crock. and third, the starbucks objection. starbucks objected and dpw says hey, if starbucks would have objected we would have denied the permit. i don't see how you got ar
getting to a place where we can get the maximum amount of community benefit we need. this gets us to a place we have 51% renewable generation in the city. that is amazing. we should look at that and wow how they doing that and still competitive with pg&e rates? and i think it's different from the enabling legislation for the contract it's hard to wrap our heads around t i was happy to hear ms. miller to come up with solutions and look at other things and this is a larger program and looking at others to come up with a solution is a great idea but i would like to hear more things like that from lafco. i think it's the role of the agency to serve as the positive, to move the paths between complicated and sometimes opposite opinions and i know it's challenging and we need to rely on puc for experts on the program but there is value what we're paying local power to do and i think it's a way to get beyond the arguments this is just doubling the rates. this say program for people that can afford to pay the premium cost. the work is innovative and i am start to appreciate looking at

market and mission to four parking spaces. expresso subito would be using two of the four on the entire block. i have customers, many of them walk, but some of them drive. there are deliveris that happen all day. i don't feel it's the right use of city parking to be giving two of them away for the four hours each week. thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening my name is khalifed ramadan. my and a half and i own sunrise deli at 54 2nd street. i signed and allowed expresso subito and gary and his employees to use our restroom. on the overhead, the location, our location is here. his truck is proposed at 84 2nd street. the reason i signed allowing him to use our restroom facility, we support small businesses, all small businesses no matter the shape or the size. and i don't think starbucks really needs our help. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good evening my name is robin gross. i am an event planner and i'm in and out of downtown all the time. one of the reasons this is of interest to me is that as we know, the lines in the coffee shops as
with getting or helping us on that. and we had to go out and get more money to pay off the people that return these guns, which was a great effort to almost equal less than the arrest with just one day of work. and this is not, and this is just ones of the arrest that we are talking about and 314 and there are other weapons that are seized at different crime scenes or found, a lot of times these guns are found in abandoned vehicles and house and people report them in back yards when we find them and we try to track those and try to find out if we can associate them with a crime. >> excuse me. >> we also track them, there is a board at dc beal's office that tracks the homicides and shootings every day. and that goes back to 2008 and it is a big white chalkboard that each day updated daily, whether we have shootings, homicides and that way the chief and the deputy chief can look at our response in what we are doing. here is currently our system by which we are respond to the 217s. we call them, the shootings out on the streets on a daily basis. i know that it is a small chart and hard to see on
which i think were never used before in a manner that they were brought forward here and commissioner sugaya is the expert on that. it was a great really joyous moment to see this project come together as quickly as it did, so as many people think that can't do in san francisco, nothing can be delivered, this is proof of an extremely complicated project if you get the list of who indeed helped bring it about from the federal government, veteran's administration and on and on, i think we can all be proud of this project. >> commissioner antonini. >> yeah, i know there is legislation that's being introduced by supervisor farrow regarding condo conversions and as you know, there are many people who are already in tenants and commons situations often grouped with people they may not be really linked to and they are co-owners until such time an ownership situation is used, these will become individualized, i think has a lot of promise, but me *f my question is is this going to come before us for some kind of discussion in the future? >> commissioner, i believe that legislation was already
or hearings on this. the only time that we heard of it was when it came back to the land use committee. when we objected to the area, they passed it on anyway as they have always done with those of us who live and breathe in bayview hunter's point. i would like to say there was an eir done, it was done by the health department and i disagree with what they presented to the staff here because of the fact when the eir was done, it was not done on the sight of 5433rd street, it was done a block away. i had three deaths in my family within the last two weeks from cancer, a young lady, 30 years of age died from asthma, as you know in my community, it's the worst in the city, in the united states of my people dying, the community have changed and i don't know what happened. i used to be able to receive -- when you have in your meetings, agendas, i'm still alive, in fact, i would like to say this, i wish that you bring this back to the floor dealing with the discretionary review, you're going to have other people talking about what's happening. my daughter sent you all an invitation next week, next

number of candidates and selecting among those that were brought before us at that meeting if i understand what dhr has put before us, so that being said, it probably isn't a bad date to think about thursday the 18th, not excluding another meeting in the future to just sort of give us the discretion to make decisions -- decisions we may need to have to make. >> i'm also happy to know the description is going out tomorrow, i think the question for me lies in, you know, are there criteria that the sub-committee has decided upon that help wid -- wit l it down to a shorter list, you subjecting between april 18 and the 24, you could wid l it down. i think that's what deserves a little more discussion, i'm happy to having that discussion closer to april when applications have come in and when linda avery made the first cut. >> can i respond? >> well, it wasn't exactly what i wanted to imply by the meeting that we're having with dhr, we're just basically going to be made privy of the decisions that were made by dhr in terms of their first cut, we're not making further cuts that day,
and that will help provide active uses at the ground floor, the building has classical proportions but in a contemporary style and they are zinc metal clad siding with plaster accents. moving around to rhode island streets, we are providing sidewalks with a bus stop, folks are currently waiting in the street, and this is showing how the massing is turned inside out and the courtyard is actively connected with the street. moving around to alameda and henry adams, we see on henry adams in particular, there is no sidewalk, the cars are parking perpendicular which in fact we liked and the proposed view shows the other side of the h shape building showing again how the scale is broken down and again on the south building, we have the 17 foot first floor. the [inaudible] on the south building are cement plaster, that is stucco with zinc accents, and then moving down henry adams, we have -- this is a view into the muse and this is also showing that unusual grade condition that we talked about where the historic street dips down for loading purposes and with the old brick warehouses, we'v

of the (inaudible) neighborhood plan. with gdg partners who is co-developing the project with us, together we have a strong commitment to the (inaudible) neighborhood plan. in addition to the 400 grove street and we are developing 200 projects in the neighborhood and one of which is you approved last september. and all of which we believe will help to fulfill the vision of the neighborhood plan and revitalize the area. >> it is located in the haze valley just three blocks from the project site and our project manager lives in the neighborhood and managed the development of it at 55 page street. as you know 400 grove street was once part of the off-ramp that stretched through blieting the neighborhood and today it serves as a surface parking lot which is not the highest and best use for the urban prop. after purchasing this parcel, we hired (inaudible) of the san francisco based award winning (inaudible) architecture. she has worked with market activity plan to design an outstanding mixed use building and help to beautify a very busy stretch of the street. it will bring numerous (inaudible) and ful
that fast pass, you're paying us to be able to ride on bart system. bart's fare increases ostensibly represent the cost of bart providing the service. so, as bart's costs go up, i don't think it's unreasonable that that cost may go up. it's true, we don't control bart's fare increase, but i think it's also fair to say that bart's not making its fare policy decisions based on, you know, what it's going to get out of this agreement. i know you weren't suggesting this, butedth fact that we don't control it i guess my point is i don't think is inherently a bad thing. and then finally, the final point on the cap, i said before supervisor campos arrived, we in bart are willing to accept the budget analyst recommendation to bring that cap down to be closer aligned for the two years that the agreement is in place. if we extend it, we would come back with perhaps an adjusted cap. >> so, mr. rifkin, supervisor campos, sorry, do you have any follow-up? >> no, go ahead. >> so, a few comments on that. one, in terms of our payment to bart is based upon their fare increases. their pitv to us is bas
the polk street, restricted alcohol use district. as requested by the commission, staft has asked the supervisor's office to attend an upcoming meeting to discuss the proposed legislation and the impacts on the businesses and development of new business in the area and in addition to the small business commission is schedule to hear the item as well in the next month. we don't have, and you did get actually committee assignments were made today by the board of supervisors but we have not received information on when it will be schedule for the committee meeting which will be at land use. so, as soon as there is a schedule of some sort, we will be able to bring someone from the supervisor to talk about this legislation with you. i also wanted to let the commission know that we, have begun the development of a best practices manual for venues for nighttime venues of all size. we began this because it is something that we have talked about for a long time and we have seen good examples from new york and chicago and we have gained a lot of practical experience and we feel like it is t
to encounter a page where we try to take the use users information. we're getting the users information so type in your name. i'm going to type in my name. and we're going to use some gener genetic data >> first name, last time, city, state, zip code, phone number, e-mail address, and i can select if i'm a new business and if i have any estimated annual revenue. this takes me to the next page which is the report. open this report our office works closely with this vendor to customize his product so you -- our business owners have to connect the tax collector. as they scroll down you'll see the permits and licenses you'll need. f a business property register. public health, department of pickup health has any requirements as well as if you locate your truck on a piece of private property i have to interact with the planning department. so all these permits are all listed here and when the yours concludes on view details they'll see what they need to complete and the fees. i can download the form. this is our tax collectors application. and i can go back to the full report to see the rest of the
who want to participate, the members of the musical community who want to participate and use the space, will be able to take a programs that they are currently delivering at sites like the school of the arts and schools in the east bay and find ways to deliver them to the locations that are around our neighborhood. i see us as serving as a catalyst for that. we will not be producers for those events but hopefully the artist and organizations that we are working with in our space will take advantage of our position in the neighborhood and work with the groups who are directly around us. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> so, i just wanted to also say along with alliance for a better district six, the community leadership alliance and at the police station, one wednesday a month at like 11 a bunch of non-profits but i can't remember what that was called. >> the tender loin future's collaborativive which is really a great hub. all of the non-for profits in the area meet there and that is at the police station in the tender loin. so definitely hit some of the neighborhood organizatio
selective. and since we're the first time we've only used 100 million of capacity. so, it was definitely not sufficient to carry this project through construction or optimal to issue for cop which is why we're showing that capitalized interest component. if we're able to expand the program, as you can see, the 500 million dollars project and the 150 is not sufficient, we could potentially reduce that 41 million to zero, which would reduce the overall borrowing cost of the transaction. >> so, colleagues, this is something i talked to ms. sese about last week when i was briefed on this project. and i think it's something i'd like to be looking at later on this year. i mean, this is -- if we have this expansion potential for commercial paper program, this is millions of dollars of cost savings for the city longer term. so, not for this today, but something in the future i wanted to flag it. but thank you for talking about that. >> thank you. >> thank you, nadia. as you can see by the schedule, we have a lot going on. >> excuse me real quick, supervisor avalos. >> i just have a quick questio
of reserves that are going to be used here my understanding is there is some flexibility in how much is recoupd and depending how you use that flexibility that could impact rates so i am wondering if you could say something about that and what the thinking is around that issue? >> yes. you will recall when the board considered the program in august the board directed us to -- i can't quote the language, but the basic message was to the extent feasible let's try and recover the dedicated funds. excuse me. what we presented as staff to the rate fairness board was full recovery of all of the funds during the first four and a half years of the program. of course the quicker you recover those funds the more a rate bump it has on the program, so the board dialogue has been around can we extend out how long we give ourselves to recover those funds? and i think under the adopted board direction, yes we can, and then the issue is. okay. if we want to by how much? and those are some of the questions we're addressing with the rate fairness board and we will present it to our commission s
. give us one second. >> good afternoon, chair farrell, members of the budget and finance committee. angela [speaker not understood] clerk of the board. i'm here today with deborah [speaker not understood] to present the department's fiscal year 13-14 proposed budget based upon budget instructions the committee provided at the december guideline hearing. as you know, we are on a rolling two-year budget cycle. the committee's general direction was to prepare a budget, a draft that was similar to the budget that was adopted last year with slight changes. today i'll take you through the current year's budget and the department's administrative and finance deputy deborah land iswill review 13-14 and 14-15. and finally since the goal today is to obtain your feedback * should you make significant changes or would like an additional presentation, we can return to the committee on february 13th if the committee desires. if the committee would indulge me just for a moment, specific to the new members on the board and interested members of the public, for background information we are a smal
